Tigers driver and irons are fantastic.

I went through his round shot by shot...interesting to note that his longest three drives were 289, 273 and 272...everything else was in the 250-260 range. Was he hitting a lot of 3 woods, or is he maybe backing off the driver a bit to get the ball in the fairway.....his average driving distance was 255, but also hit 13 of 14 fairways.

Last hole, he drove it 306....I agree on his short distance average though....but his long irons were on fire....maybe his game plan?

I am watching shot tracker.

Well, he's finished anyway so it doesn't matter now. Tiger Woods -6, 255.5 driving distance, 92.86 % driving accuracy, 83.33% GIR! Those are ridiculous! He probably throttled back a little or hit more 3 woods because of that driving distance, but the fairways and GIR numbers are crazy!

And average proximity to hole 23 feet, which is also pretty good

That's very good, specially since (I'm pretty sure) that stat includes missed greens.

Well, I guess this answers it

Q: Do you plan to hit as many 3s off the tee with the conditions? TIGER WOODS: It depends on the wind condition. For most of the day the wind was in the right direction to hit three wood off the tee. I could have hit driver a couple more times but I had to take it over corners. I didn't feel comfortable with it. Ball in hand it's more important to get the ball in play. Even if I have a 3 or 4-iron in the fairway I'd much rather have that an a 7-iron in the rough. It's wet and guys aren't getting it to the green. So I just felt that was a better way of playing the golf course today.

Anyone going? This is going to be my first PGA event I attend - I do kind of regret missing out on the Barclays last year and that Liberty Golf Course...

I was at Liberty National last year for the Barclays and we'll be there again this year for Sunday's round. Last year we watched th practice range for a while (highly recommend this) and then headed to the course around 1:00 and walked it backwards.

It worked out pretty well because we got to see the whole course and everyone in the field and then we made it back to 1/18 in time to settle in and watch the contending groups come home. Following Tiger is a wash. But like I mentioned, if you're walkin the course backward you get ahead of the crowd and can wait in a good vanage point for anyone you want to see. I should've mentioned last year we went on Saturday and they went off both sides of the course due to bad weather.. so perhaps walkin backwards wouldn't have worked out as well with everyone going off th front.

With all of the 3 woods tiger hit off the tee today with success, I am amazed that it took him this long to realize that hitting the 3 wood is a good gameplan? Yes, there are courses and holes where you MUST hit driver but with his driver being all over the place like it is, he should've been hitting 3woods off of the tee all season with resorting to 4i & 5i's from the fairway on his second shot.... Regardless, great round for him today.

I do some divorces. Only once do I remember a client shedding a tear leaving the judge's office after finalization. Most often, they leave with a lighter step and a feeling that a load is off their shoulders.

Thursday's leader is rarely on the leaderboard come Sunday, so it's jumping to conclusions to say that Tiger is back. But maybe he is.

It's on ESPN3 now.

I don't understand who is covering what on the internets. I assume if it's on the Golf Channel, ESPN doesn't carry it, but ESPN3 does. I guess the ESPN coverage is different from that of the Golf Channel.

I guess just check ESPN3 regardless.

Did Tiger change his swing slightly? I just watched the highlights of his round and something looks differant, clubface seems to be more shut/square, maybe foley told his to use a stronger grip?

I got out of class around 1 p.m. today and boy was I surprised when I saw the leaderboard. It's pretty exciting to see Tiger's name at the top again :) at least for Tiger fans it is.

    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
